Origin[edit]

Fly Guys debuted in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. They fly around and carry items, including 1-Ups and rare Red Coins. Some of them fly back and forth in a set path, while others appear suddenly, move quickly and fly away if not hit in time.

Fly Guy

ntsc This enemy from the Yoshi's Island series is basically a Shy Guy with a propeller on its head. It hauls items with it as it flies, so chase it down to claim a reward. Usually it's just food, but sometimes one will have some better prizes. You could say these ones are...pretty fly for a Shy Guy. No? Never mind.

pal This enemy usually appears in Yoshi's Island. It's basically a Shy Guy, but with a propeller on its head sooo...you could say it's pretty fly for a Shy Guy. No? OK, then. They fly around overhead with items that you'll want to get hold of! Usually it's only food, but just sometimes they might be carrying something even better...
